University of Texas apologizes for embarrassing typo on commencement program

Commencement program will have to be reprinted

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - The University of Texas has apologized for an embarrassing typo on a commencement program.

The image sent out on Twitter was for the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. Unfortunately, someone left out the "L" in public.

The 2012 commencement programs were distributed to students on Saturday.

The LBJ school issued an apology via Twitter and said it will issue new copies of the program.

"Obviously, we are mortified. It's beyond embarrassing," Susan Binford, the school's assistant dean for communications, said on TheBlaze.com. "As soon as we realized the mistake, everybody went into overdrive and we went to work to reprint it."
